I have a 4 month old who is currently being double wrapped. A smaller wrap just secures her arms across her belly, so that she can move them down by her sides or across her chest but not up and out of the wrap. A second larger wrap, wraps her entirely up. Previously to wrapping with 2 wraps, she would wiggle her hands up out of the wrap and slap herself about and wake up. She has slept very well wrapped this way, sleeping from 10pm to 8am overnight.
However the last few nights have have been horrible. She is fights and struggling against being wrapped, however when I have tried to loose the wraps once she is asleep, or just wrap her loosely she is only sleeping for 20mins at a time, then waking and screaming.
Last night she woke every 2hrs, but I had her wrapped securely and when I went in there, she had pretty much gotten herself loose. She was absolutely screaming in temper, because as soon as she got what she wanted, which was to be unwrapped, she stopped.
If anyone has any suggestions, I would be most grateful!
